They have already read over 2/3 of their apps, if not more. I think they know how to allocate their funds. Furthermore, I wanted to make sure that they were sending out Merit scholarships before another schools deadline. If they told me they would not be out till say April 14, my decision would have been heavily impacted.
You know that schools offer at least 2x their actual amount of merit awards because they have forecasting models and yield projections, right? So you really think they've already offered 4 mil (when they have 2 mil), despite only rendering decisions on like 2/3s of their applications? There's just no way.
